The New York Giants worked out five players this week, including free-agent OLB D.J. Bryant (Ravens), OL Mike Golic Jr. (Notre Dame), RB Dion Lewis (Browns), OL Jordan McCray (Packers) and LB Uani Unga (BYU).
Huddle Up: That the Giants are test-driving a running back suggests that Rashad Jennings may not be ready this weekend. The team is already thin at the position, so even if Jennings does go they may want Lewis as depth. He'd be a potential pass-catching option if Jennings is out and Andre Williams handles feature-back duties.

The Indianapolis Colts signed free-agent RB Dion Lewis (Browns) Tuesday, Sept. 9, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Indy was thin on RB depth with only Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton behind Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw so this move is hardly a surprise. There are no fantasy ramifications, however, here for the time being.

The Cleveland Browns released RB Dion Lewis Saturday, Aug. 30.
Huddle Up: Lewis was beaten out by Isaiah Crowell for the final running back spot in Cleveland. Crowell, a former 5 star recruit at Georgia, is a name to watch should Ben Tate get injured. Lewis will try to garner attention elsewhere as a third-down back.

Cleveland Browns RB Dion Lewis said he is completely recovered from the broken leg he suffered last year and should be ready for the start of training camp. He sat out organized team activities and minicamp because of an undisclosed injury that he said was not related to his leg. Lewis also said he is not sure what his role will be this upcoming season but is looking forward to competing during training camp. Lewis said he believes he has a good grasp of the new offense.
Huddle Up: Lewis will definitely see his share of work if healthy, but former-Texan Ben Tate sits atop the depth chart, and the Browns also like what they've seen from rookie third-rounder Terrance West so forecasting Lewis' fantasy future is a murky proposition at the moment.

Cleveland Browns RBs Ben Tate, Terrance West and Dion Lewis will be amongst a running back committee, according to head coach Mike Pettine. 'I think in the AFC North, you have to be running back by committee,' Pettine said. 'You'd like to have a guy that can carry most of the load, but also be able to alternate guys... you've got to be able to get fresh legs out there.'
Huddle Up: There isn't a more hated phrase in the lexicon of fantasy football than "running back committee". Cleveland's RBBC dings Tate's fantasy value significantly as well as putting the brakes on talk of West as a hot sleeper candidate.
